2020 Kia Sportage on the Road

The 2020 Kia Sportage is attractive to Orlando drivers for many reasons — the most important of which is probably the safety and security this SUV offers to you and your family. The team at Greenway Kia West breaks down the Kia Sportage safety ratings and technologies that promote a safe drive on Orlando and Winter Garden roads.

Kia Safety Rating – Sportage NHTSA and IIHS Scores

Kia has a legacy of high safety ratings, so it should come as no surprise that the new Kia Sportage has excellent marks from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration):

  • Overall NHTSA Safety Rating: 5 stars
  • Overall Front Star Rating: 4 Stars. Front passenger-side – 4 stars and Front Driver Side – 5 stars.
  • Overall Side Star rating: 5 Stars
  • Combined Side Barrier and Pole Ratings — 5 Stars
  • Rollover Rating — 4 Stars

Kia safety ratings from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) are characteristically solid. The 2020 Kia Sportage earned the IIHS’s highest ranking of “Good” on all the sections rated for crashworthiness, including:

  • Small overlap front, driver’s side
  • Small overlap front, passenger’s side
  • Moderate overlap front
  • Roof Strength
  • Head Restraints and Seats
